Finding dad's Playboy collection in the shed leaves a 12-year-old boy thinking, "HOLY CRAP, BOOBS!" But rarely do such events occur in real life -- especially to adults. Well, one such holy-crap exception happened recently in Nevada’s Great Basin National Park when a 132-year-old Winchester rifle was found just resting against a tree, untouched for well over 100 years. Unfortunately, no decrepit smut mags were present.
The brown gun was discovered last November in a remote area of the park, hidden for decades because its rusting barrel and crumbling wood stock blended seamlessly into the environment. The serial number on the repeating rifle, engraved “Model 1873”, suggests the firearm was made in 1882, when it would have cost just $25 to purchase, or nearly $600 in 2015 dollars.
